The flu season will be upon us soon. There may be confusion as to what the “flu” really means. Some may use the term to describe the common cold, vomiting and diarrhea (stomach bug), or most accurately, the viral respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus.
Infection with the influenza virus can lead to serious complications. The best protection against influenza is by getting your annual flu vaccination. Please contact your local pharmacy or health care provider to schedule a flu vaccination if you have not already done so.
We encourage our students, family members, and employees to monitor their health status and stay home and/or seek medical attention if feeling ill.
If your child is not feeling well, we ask that you follow the protocols below:
Check their temperature before taking any fever-reducing medication;
Keep them home if the temperature is 100(F) or higher;
Keep your child home until the fever is gone for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication; and
If there is vomiting or diarrhea, stay home until symptoms resolve; and
Notify the school of your child’s absence and inform the nurse of any specific diagnosis.
Practice proper hand hygiene:
Wash hands thoroughly or use hand sanatizer, especially after coughing or sneezing, before eating, and after being in public places or using a lavatory;
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth; and
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or into your elbow.

Sports & Activities
This will link you to the district athletics page. Since many of our students participate on the Freshman, JV, and Varsity levels, you'll be able to access their teams at this site. Modified sports as well are linked here.
In order to try out, practice or participate in any sport the student must have a current sports physical and be certified by the school nurse. Physicals are considered current for 12 continuous months and must be within a year from the beginning of the sports season. Should the date of the physical expire during the sports season a new physical is required.
Physical exams may be given by the school physician or the student’s family physician with review and approval by the school’s physician. They must include blood pressure reading and urine test for sugar and albumin.
The school nurse has sports physical sign-ups several times throughout the year prior to each sports season. The school’s physician will be available at the middle school to perform sports physicals during this time.
